Forage seeds are widely utilized for the purpose of livestock feeding. When added to livestock feed, these seeds help in increasing the levels of protein, energy, and fertility among cattle. Alfalfa, lablab, clover, chicory, ryegrass, and fescue are some of the popular forage seeds in the global market.

The market has been witnessing a healthy rise in the demand for forage seeds over the past few years, owing to the cost efficiency of forage seeds. The rising awareness regarding the health benefits that forage seeds provide to animals is also adding significantly to the growth of this market. Additionally, the increasing need for healthy animals, propelled by the growing demand for meat, dairy, and organic products, is likely to boost this market during the forecast period, notes the research study.

In this report, the worldwide forage seeds market has been analyzed on the basis of product, livestock, and the regional distribution. Product-wise, the market has been segmented into clover, alfalfa, chicory, ryegrass, and other forage seeds such as fescue and lablab. In 2014, alfalfa seeds enjoyed the highest demand while clover and ryegrass closely followed. The demand for alfalfa is likely to remain on top during the forecast period. Other products are also expected to witness significant growth in the coming years.

Based on livestock, the market has been categorized into cattle, poultry, pork/swine, and others such as aquaculture livestock. The poultry segment leads the global market in terms of the consumption of forage seeds.
